Not to get into specifics (and I can't really speak for DSI, as I've never reviewed anything for them), but nothing could be further from the truth, at least if you're reviewing for a reputable publication. I've never given anyone a credit card, and no one's every tried to charge me for a review instrument that wasn't returned quickly.griffin avid wrote:Unfortunately, you sign a form and give them a way to charge you in case you don't return it in the specified time.
Pus You are responsible for EVERYTHING.
So, I'm sure they would LOVE for you to lose it in the mail.
They would say no problem and charge your card in the next 20 mins.
In some cases I've had to call reps and practically force them to take stuff back. That said, this very likely more the case with big companies as opposed to smaller ones like DSI/Moog/et al.
